The food, drink and hospitality of the venue are not in question - this is a relaxed and friendly dining hall which provides a wonderful selection of food and drink promptly served by professional and courteous staff. My main issue with the arrangement is that this grand space becomes the focal point for tourists above to hang around the balcony... More

I booked a room for my parents in Waldorf to celebrate my parents' 30th wedding anniversary and I decided to choose Grand Brasserie for their dinner. I made a call to the restaurant and it was answered by Maggie. After sharing my concern about my budget, she recommended me a very good deal on App 'Enjoy'. In addition, I wanted... More

We had to send back the bread which was rock solid and the fries which were dry and tasted like they had been kept for days and refried. Just really dishonest for the prices they charge. My husband had the bouillabaisse which he said was the worst he had ever tasted. Just horrible, horrible, horrible.

The Brasserie is a wonderful area set in a area which in its heyday could have easily been a grand ballroom with oval ceilings with chandeliers and marbled floors. Adjoining the restaurant is a garden with water feature waterfall. Breakfast is a hearty buffet while lunch and dinner is a la carte.. Sunday is the famous buffet brunch. The staff... More

After 3 weeks in China and many luxury hotels, the Grand Brasserie breakfast buffet was truly the best. Everything from congee to croissants -- the buffet covers it all, including excellent coffee. We also had a set menu dinner one evening. The food was excellent, the service is a bit slow, but if you are not in a hurry, an... More

The Sunday brunch at Waldorf has always been on of the most exclusive ones in Shanghai, but on my last visit I noticed that staff attentiveness and service quality was really going down a lot. Had to continously ask for service or remind staff of orders. Even some tried hard, the overall impression is that Waldorf has really impressive hardware,... More

OMG, this should be a 5-star hotel? No, it is not, except for its high price and the historic building! The Waldorf Astoria Shanghai has become a big disappointment! Mainly because of bad management and lots of excuses on so called "trainees". Really? So, the "Trainees" are responsible for the 20 degree warm champaign throughout a whole Sunday brunch, the...

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
